Season 3, Episode 1: "Nosedive"
The Good Place isn't showrunner Michael Schur's only time playing around with a social point system. In "Nosedive, which the comedy writer developed with Rashida Jones, we enter a world where people rate each other on a five-star system for every interaction. A woman named Lacie (Bryce Dallas Howard) becomes obsessed with raising her average, but her dedication only ends up tanking her rating and driving her mad.
The commentary on social media never feels preachy or ham-handed. In fact, it's a pretty funny, if not heartfelt episode with strong performances from Howard and Cherry Jones. The pastel colour palette also adds to the visual intrigue and subtly creepy tone in a Stepford Wife kind of way.
